Halfords carried out an Air Conditioning Pre Service Inspection (£39.99), only for me to learn I have a damaged A/C condenser.

And guess what - a quick search confirms that 'a damaged A/C condenser cannot be repaired and must be replaced.'

It is also said that 'you can expect that you will get 8-10 years of use from your AC compressor' .

Anyone  else had this misfortune lol?

The a/c on my red one packed in a few years ago. I got the local garage to look at it and they basically said it was knackered and couldn’t be serviced. That was as technical as it got and I didn’t persue it. Now the red one is definately a keeper and I’m thinking about getting it done. Have you had a quote?

Hi - Halfords said the labor alone would be £320. And I read elsewhere that £600 wasn't unreasonable 'all-in' - but that depends on the car of course. So although I haven't had a full quote, I expect it wont be too far off that price.
Then again, nothing much is cheap these days.
I expect  I'll think it over between now an next summer...
